Using The Ajnamat for Poor Circulation
If you frequently experience symptoms such as numbness, tingling, pain, and muscle cramping in your extremities, you may be suffering from poor circulation. In many cases, using the Ajnamat can help to promote blood circulation in the body, thereby helping to reduce your symptoms.
What is Poor Circulation?
Your body’s circulatory system is responsible for moving oxygen, blood, and nutrients through your body. When blood flow to a particular area of the body, most commonly the arms and legs, is restricted, you may begin to experience symptoms of poor circulation, including:
- Numbness and/or tingling.
- A throbbing type of pain in your extremities.
- Muscle cramping.
It’s important to remember that poor circulation isn’t a condition on its own, it occurs because of other health issues, including injury, obesity, heart conditions, arterial issues, and/or diabetes. While using the Ajnamat can help to improve blood circulation, it’s important that you also treat the underlying cause of your symptoms.
How the Ajnamat Helps with Poor Circulation
The Ajnamat has been designed with more than 5,000 spikes that help to activate the natural healing abilities of your body. The Ajnamat aims to improve blood circulation, relieve muscle tension, decrease pain, and restore the natural flow of energy within the body. Additionally, use of the Ajnamat releases oxytocin and endorphins, which act as natural painkillers.
Improved circulation improves the look and feel of your skin, helps you fight infection, and promotes new cell growth. Adequate blood flow also enables your organs, including your heart, to function optimally. When your heart is fully pumping various things happen including a lowered heart rate, relaxed heart muscles, and even blood pressure flow.
If you’re an athlete, you’ll be happy to know that increased circulation helps your body to recover faster by increasing the blood supply to your muscles to help them receive more nutrients, oxygen, and fresh fluids. Increased circulation also means that the lactic acid and toxin buildup in your system are excreted from the body. Improved recovery times means that you can return to your regular training program faster, and ultimately improve your performance.
Using the Ajnamat for Poor Circulation
In order to improve blood circulation in the body, you should use your Ajnamat 20 minutes per day, numerous times per week. To improve overall body circulation, you can either sit or lie on the mat; however, you can also target certain areas of the body where you might be experiencing symptoms of poor circulation, such as the feet, legs, arms, and hands.
If you suffer from symptoms of poor circulation, incorporating the Ajnamat into your daily routine may help to get your symptoms under control and allow you to live a healthy and active lifestyle.
